Pinoy Lomo Tip: Where to scan films?

Hello Pinoy Lomographers! Here we are again for another Pinoy Lomo Tip, and issue’s topic is “Where do we have our films scanned?”

Most of us do not develop the films, for 1, it would cost you more and 2, it’s not very manageable to store piles of pictures. So I have my films scanned too, at DIGIPRINT.

Reasons why I choose Digiprint:

♥ It’s the cheapest I’ve found. It costs P135 for the first roll and P35 on the succeeding rolls, that’s for 35mm film. The minimum number of rolls per transaction is 5, so that makes P275 per 5 rolls.

♥ They burn the pictures on a CD. They can store up to 5 rolls of film per CD. I like it because it also serves as my backup, you know when it’s digital, it’s very convenient to organize, but when it’s deleted, it’s forever gone!

♥ Free shipping. After 3-5 days. you will get your scanned films at your doorstep by LBC. NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE! It will include the canisters if you request for it. You will also get your negatives back.

Any special handling /request are welcome. They can cross-process your slide films, scan in half-frame and square-frame format but I’m afraid you would have to note that on the receipt, just to make sure all is well when you get your scans.

♥ They  have a  lot of branches all over the metro. Their branch list is not updated though, so use it to contact them and get updated yourself. Note: Megamall branch closed.

And that’s about it. Spread the analogue love!

Pinoy Lomo Tip: Where to buy films?

To all Pinoy Lomo newbie (I am too, don’t worry) here’s what I can offer.

I buy my films online at Lomo Loco Shop. The owner is of course Pinoy, her name is Kara. Here’s why I like her shop:

♥ Cheapest film online store you can find locally. The price ranges from P60 to P215 for 35mm films.

♥ You can have your films delivered to you or meet up with her to get it. You will be shouldering the delivery charge but for meet ups, the minimum amount of purchase should be P1000. I only do meet ups, and so far she’s been so accommodating.

♥ Wide array of film variations. The store doesn’t have all kinds but I can say that the most common are there—35mm and 120mm, even slide films.

♥ Website is being updated periodically. You can even subscribe to get updates through email. It is the most updated local online lomo store.

♥ Films are expired. It has this “luma” effect.

* I will also be checking in Hidalgo, Quiapo the best store where we can buy films.

* Team Manila is also selling films, 3 rolls per, a bit pricey at around P600 to P1200.

* You can also share us where you buy your films in the Phils. by using the answer button below.
